You might now bread pudding with raisins, but did you know where this recipe came from?
Bread pudding (also called bodding) is a Belgian and Dutch delicacy, made from bread scraps, raisins, eggs and sugar, whose origins can probably be traced back to the Middle Ages.
Bread pudding is made by soaking (old) bread and other bakery products (bread pudding in bakeries often includes coffee cakes) in milk. When the bread is soaked, other flavorings can be added. Popular additions are cinnamon, sugar, (dried) fruit, cocoa, vanilla and pudding powder.
The pudding is baked in a hot oven (+/- 180°C) and is often glazed afterwards.
